One pot--so simple! My MIL, who is from the Dominican Republic, has ALWAYS made this. Every since the very first time she made it for me, it has been my FAVORITE dish. Even my kids, ages 12 & 5 and are incredibly picky, will eat this meal. We usually make it with a side salad and fried Plantains like in Recipe #187281. Oh and the house smells incredible while this is cooking!
